YBOP 2014 Presents

YBOP Audition Updates!

The Yale Baroque Opera Project spring production of Cavalli's Xerse. The opera features regal star-crossed lovers, mistaken identities, and the shenanigans of comic servants.

Xerse will be performed in the original Italian, accompanied by harpsichord, theorbos, and a small string orchestra.

Auditions have been moved to Saturday, September 19, 2–5 pm in Stoeckel 106.

There is a sign-up sheet in Stoeckel music office. Please prepare an aria in Italian (if possible), preferably written before 1800 (but whatever you have ready will also work), that shows off the beauty and agility of your voice. A little bit of recit would be welcome, but not necessary. Accompanist provided.

YBOP is known for its professional quality sets, costumes and production values. Our past few productions have drawn nearly 1000 attendees to the University Theater.

Performance dates are Saturday April 30 and Sunday May 1 at 3pm, in the University Theater (220 York Street).

YBOP participants must enroll in MUS 322 / THST 318 in the spring semester, which meets Thursdays 4-6 pm.
